Last Epoch is the latest entry into the digital video game shelves of players and is a new roguelike Action RPG. The game features many elements that gamers will be familiar with from games like Diablo and Path of Exile. One of the most similar features is the presence of items and item rarities, which are a grind in the endgame much like other games. Here's a comprehensive guide to the item rarities in Last Epoch and how to farm them.

Item Rarities in Last Epoch

1. Common (White):

  • These are basic items found at the beginning of the game.

  • Common items do not have any affixes or modifiers.

2. Magic (Blue):

  • Magic items are similar to Common items but feature 1 to 2 affixes, making them more desirable.

  • They are often sought after by starting players for their upgrade potential.

3. Rare (Yellow):

  • Rare items feature 3 to 4 different affixes, making them valuable during the midgame.

  • They are more common drops compared to higher rarities.

4. Exalted (Purple):

  • Exalted items are found mostly in endgame activities and feature Tier 6 affixes.

  • These items are crucial for endgame builds as they provide exclusive T6 affixes that cannot be altered through crafting.

5. Unique (Orange):

  • Unique items are the rarest drops in the game and feature specific stats and affixes meant for specific classes and builds.

  • They cannot be changed via crafting and are often tied behind trash mobs, dungeons, or higher-tier bosses.

6. Set (Green):

  • Set items come with bonuses that activate when you have more items of the same set.

  • They amplify the stats of a build and work similarly to Unique items.

7. Legendary (Red):

  • Legendary items are obtained by upgrading a Unique piece of gear.

  • They share affixes from Exalted items and add new properties from Uniques, making them highly sought after for endgame builds.

Farming Strategies:

  • For Common and Magic items, focus on defeating enemies and looking for item drops that upgrade your build-specific stats.

  • Rare items are common drops from mid-campaign to endgame, so keep an eye out for them from trash mobs, bosses, and echo rewards.

  • Exalted items are crucial for endgame builds and can be found in endgame activities. Focus on completing Monoliths of Fate to obtain dungeon keys for entry.

  • Unique items are rare drops tied to specific mobs, dungeons, and bosses. Some can be obtained via crafting using a Rune of Ascendance and a gear of the same type.

In addition to these item rarities, Experimental items feature special and unique affixes and can be of any rarity. These items only drop from Exiled Mages and can be used to create Legendaries with Experimental affixes.
